    But that's where Repels come in, right?

    Oh god, just don't, the memories of surfing my way back down the entire of the water route in Hoen without any repels, it haunts me.

    Also I love how when you just want to leave its every step you take but when you want to catch a Pokemon you have to run through 50 acres of grass just for one random encounter, the game hates me!

    Heck yeah sometimes its not even two steps. I move one block over and there you go F'N TENTACOOL!! Luckily after horrible Zubat/Geodude/Tentacool run ins I always nothing less than 15 repels (any repel that I can get) on my virtual person.
    Well met, friend! This is my signature.

    Oh man, I remember that @-@; You can almost anticipate them when you're not using any repels...

    I never really bought repels. There may have been a rare pokemon in the route!

    I like how BW replace the annoying PKMN. Which are Machop, Geodude, Zubat and Tentacool. I was jumpin' for joy when I found out that they didnt have those PKMN listed above.

    Machop, Geodude, Zubat and Tentacool
    Machop isn't as annoying as Zubat, Geodude or Tentacool.

    And yeah, I hate that in every step, a TENTACOOL! ;x. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to use Repels.

    I did, I think the worst was when I ran out of repels while still in the water.

    Probably, but it never really annoyed me at all. I didn't use Repels either.

    Tentacool were the most common Pokemon encountered at sea in Generation 3, so it isn't all that surprising that people encountered hundreds of them. I used Repels quite a bit in these games when I went Surfing, so the Tentacool didn't really bother me much. I did encounter a Shiny Tentacool once, though, so I guess they can't be all that bad

    Tentacruel are worth battling... Tentacool are not...

    But, God (more so Game Freak)gave us the blessing that is the Max Repel... let us rejoice....

    God, Tentacools should be removed from this game. Remember the golden days (R/B/Y) when virtually no water Pokémon appeared when surfing? Yeah. That was the life.

    When I surf, even if I turn around staying in the same spot I encounter a Pokémon

    ^ Yeah I know! Sometimes when I was doing the Missingno. Glitch it would take me literally five mins to actually encounter something. Then RSE I'm getting hit by friggin Tentacools left right and centre. I got excited when a Pelipper came though :P

    Tentacool on the water, zubat scream in caves, and also that stupid tunnel with nothing but Whismur in it. Still, even the newer games seem to have high random encounter rates in places.

    I'm just glad pokemon elected to confine the random encounters to certain areas anyways, instead of taking 2+ decades to do it, like Dragon Quest...
